Sunday Studio Pastel Demo Video: Painting Aspens with Terry Ludwig's Stunning Yellows

'Stunning Yellow'           8x10       pastel        ©Karen Margulis
available $145

 The box arrived yesterday and I was chomping at the bit. Terry Ludwig's new pastels are always a treat and I was especially excited to see these new 'Stunning Yellows'.  Of course they are just that...Stunning!  They are perfect for so many things that I love in the landscape....chamisa, sunflowers, bumblebees, daisies and of course aspens in the Fall!

I decided to try them for the first time live on Facebook!  The painting in this post is the result of my live demo with a few final marks of yellow and violet. You can see the video on my Youtube channel or my Facebook page. Be sure to like and share if you found the demo helpful!

The demo painting is 8x10 on Uart 400 grit. I did a dry wash underpainting of the tree foliage using a terra-cotta Nupastel. 


I did use a few additional pastels for the painting. I happened to have a tray of colors I used for another autumn painting and some of these pastels were perfect for the aspens.


I hope you enjoyed the demo! Tell Terry you saw the set on my blog when you make your purchase (I know you want them ;)  )

Nice broad range of yellows, warm, cool, muted, saturated, values! Love your aspens painting, a violet-yellows scheme is always so spectacular!
